I saw this at Jake Tapper’s piece about how the McCain camp will be hitting Obama hard on his relationships with some pretty nasty guys. This ad by Judicial Confirmation Network best explains why examining who Obama chooses to associate with is so important in this presidential election. Tapper writes this:
The conservative Judicial Confirmation Network is running a TV ad tying Obama to not just Rezko, but William Ayers (now using cartoons to spread his ideas) and the bombastic Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
“We don’t know who Barack Obama would choose” as a Supreme Court justice, the ad says, “but we know this. He chose as one of his first financial backers a slumlord now convicted on 16 counts of corruption. Obama chose as an associate a man who helped to bomb the Pentagon and said he ‘didn’t do enough.’ And Obama chose as his pastor a man who has blamed America for the 9/11 attacks.”
Here’s the ad.
I love this ad because it’s so effective in highlighting that Obama’s history of hanging around these kinds of sleazy, corrupt, and nasty people means he fails when it comes to judgment. He simply can’t be trusted to nominate justices for lifetime positions on the Supreme Court.
